“Leadership is not about being in charge. It is about taking care of those in your charge.” – Simon Sinek
With this profound quote by Simon Sinek in mind, I, Joshua Mintah, humbly present myself as a candidate for the esteemed position of Outside Hostel Coordinator in the upcoming elections. As a Level 300 Civil Engineering student of this noble institution, I firmly believe in the transformative power of strong leadership and its ability to create a safe, conducive, and supportive living environment for all students residing in outside hostels. My vision is to foster a harmonious and thriving community within our hostels, where every resident can flourish academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, united in purpose, we can build a safe, sustainable, and supportive community within our outside hostels. With this in mind, I present my comprehensive manifesto:
Technology Integration: One of my key policies is to integrate private hostel booking systems into a centralized app and website to assist students in finding suitable accommodation easily. This initiative aims to streamline the process of hostel selection and provide students with a convenient platform to access information about available hostels, their facilities, and pricing. By implementing this technology, I can enhance the overall experience of students searching for accommodation and ensure transparency in the booking process.
Inclusivity: Another important policy I wish to promote is the involvement of private hostel residents in school activities. This initiative aims to bridge the gap between private hostel residents and those living on campus by creating opportunities for collaboration and participation. By organizing events, workshops, and social gatherings that involve both groups, I can foster a sense of community and inclusivity within the university environment.
Welfare: As an Outside Hostel Coordinator, I plan to champion conflict resolution at appropriate quarters. This policy emphasizes the importance of addressing conflicts or issues that may arise within private hostels promptly and effectively. By establishing channels for communication and mediation, I can ensure that students’ concerns are heard and resolved in a fair manner. Additionally, I will work towards creating a supportive environment where students feel comfortable discussing their problems and seeking assistance when needed
Hygiene: Lobbying for proper sanitation and environmental standards at various private hostels is another crucial policy I aim to implement. Ensuring that private hostels maintain high standards of cleanliness and hygiene is essential for the well-being of students residing there. By collaborating with relevant authorities, conducting regular inspections, and advocating for necessary improvements, I can contribute to creating a healthier and safer living environment for students.
Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR): last but not the least, I intend to make corporate social activities a mandatory requirement rather than an optional choice for private hostels. By encouraging private hostel owners to engage in CSR initiatives, such as community service projects or environmental sustainability efforts, I can promote a sense of social responsibility among students and contribute positively to the wider community.
Your support and vote will empower me to transform our vision into tangible realities. I wholeheartedly commit myself to be your steadfast advocate, collaborator, and leader in fostering a hostel experience that inspires growth, unity, and shared success
Long live Ghana
Long live TTU.
